Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Excellent Santa special visit with the kids. Unrushed time with Santa, lovely gifts included and very friendly and helpful volunteer staff.

    We went to Liddington PGL as our school residential and it was amazing!

    The activities were good with a lot of choice and the instructors always made sure we were safe and I feel like I conquered my fears and tried new things, thank you!

    The instructors were generally nice and were not bossy or stressed but one - I won't say who - was slightly rude. But other than that they were very supportive and encouraging. Special shout out to Sasha our group leader who was so fun and nice.

    The food was good and basic. There could have been a bit more choice but there was always choice for salad and I felt like I ate very healthily.

    The rooms are to a basic standard with comfy beds and storage space. However our bathroom was bad. The toilet seat was wobbly and had lots of stains. The lights were sensors and went off every 12 seconds so it would go pitch black while you were on the toilet. The tap was very splashy and inefficient.

    Apart from the bathroom troubles, PGL was better than I ever would have imagined, thank you for making my experience so unforgettable PGL ❤️

    Booked a tandem skydive with Skydive London a few weeks ago. Arrived at 9am today as scheduled and I had already been allocated to the 12th spot, which turned out to be the 5th batch to go. Waited two and a half hours and finally it was my turn. I was taken care of by a very experienced and humorous instructor named Luke. As a first timer, I was a little nervous but Luke quickly put me at ease. The flight to 10,000 feet took about 8-10 minutes. When everything was set to go, things happened so fast. There was no time to be scared. Once leaped out with Luke and experienced the free fall, the fun began. I enjoyed thew free fall part very much. Luke pulled opened the parachute after dropping for about 5,000 feet. The up-pulling force was rather abrupt. Followed by the spiralling that gave Memorandum time to enjoy the view. We landed with no hassle. The straps around the thighs did cause some discomfort. What a great experience. It is an activity good for families and friends. Heard that they will move to a new site upon completion of this season after having operated here for 15 years. I was happy that I did buy the video package and Joe the photographer came along, so I can bring home with good memory.

    Finally got a flight after 6 cancellations. Pilot was very good. Lovely experience. Probably not a location I would choose but was in the area and had previously wasted booking time away only to be cancelled the night before.

    I booked the Astro Photography Workshop with Paul Colley to improve my night sky photography. The course has taught me so much and exceeded what I thought I would get from the course. Luckily the weather was very kind to us and we managed to get some images of the milky way. Both James(prohides) and Paul were excellent and could not be more helpful and I highly recommend this course if you are a beginner like me, or have a bit of experience.

    I use JC for all by diving needs, always very helpful and knowledgeable. I recently had some custom modification make to my dry suit, it was better than the manufactures build, well done guys. Always willing to go the extra mile. I have found their prices very competitive and always cheaper than other dive stores but with the quality support to back it up.

    I would strongly recommend Clearprop to anyone interested either in aviation or just sightseeing from an alternative perspective.
    The instructors are all fantastic and will put you at ease. I have had the pleasure of flying with them all as after taking a trial (sightseeing) flight I went on to train for a microlight pilots licence.

    The airfield (Redlands) is conveniently located close to the M4 and A419 and has a good cafe which is open most weekends.

    As a day out, a microlight flight is an unforgettable experience especially in Wiltshire where there is so much to see.

    Lead climbing course with Brian was excellent. We learned a lot over three sessions and Brian took time to answer all questions and explain why things should be done the way he thought us. I learned to climb with Brian many years ago and I am glad I had another opportunity to learn from him.

    Recently booked GW Taxi Swindon for a group of 9 people. We had a great experience- the whole service was fantastic! Our drivers arrived early and also greeted us outside the venue on foot to save any confusion of finding the taxi. But also a member of our group misplaced their handbag and GW were straight onto looking and informing us that they had it safe. Will definitely use again.

    I took four of my grandsons on a Wizard Wand making session. All four had a brilliant time and took home the prized wands. The tuition by David was first class and presented in such a way that it was easily understood without being patronizing. There are toilet facilities which are as clean as an outward bound type establishment can expect (muddy boots). There is a disabled toilet too which is brilliant.

    Booked online. Lots of communication before the tour. Car park directions do need a little bit more thought, as does accessing the building & pre-tour seating.
    Once we sorted these out, we were welcomed & introduced to our 3 guides.
    Strict rules to adhere to but we could see the reasoning behind them all.
    Lots to learn about during the tour. Amazed at the ‘futuristic’ procedures & robotics. All guides were very informative and answered all our questions.
    The tour lasted about an hour. We would definitely recommend booking this tour if you use Amazon &/or are interested in logistics.

    Had used them for business related transport for a group of us the other day. They arrived about 10 minutes before the pick up time which was impressive. Their cars were in clean condition and drivers were very polite. I would highly recommend them.
